Another week has passed, and triple j have spent it doing what they do best – delivering endless hit tunes by a wide variety of brilliant artists from both here and abroad. Of course, with so many songs being played in a week, it can get pretty tough to know the artists that have been the most popular.

Well, thanks to our friends over at J Play, you don’t have to worry about not knowing who the most popular artists on triple j are each week any more.

triple j’s most-played artists for the week
